In my district plan time is a negotiated contract item. We are given 260
minutes per week, regardless of whether you teach Kindergarten, MS Science,
HS English, K-12 Art (me), 5-12 Band, etc. Some teachers get more just
because it works out that way (5th & 6th get more time than 3rd & 4th due to
students starting band). They tried one time to have the 5 min. between
classes count as plan time. I asked if MS & HS teachers had to count student
passing time as part of their plan.
